Working from home sounds like the perfect solution for moms who want to stay home with the kids as well as hold down a paying job (because we all know that being a mom is a full time job, but the pay is not in monetary form). And it certainly can be the perfect solution! But if you've ever done it you know that it's harder than it sounds. Working from home is such a different dynamic that if you're not ready for it you can get pulled under pretty fast. On the other hand, if you are prepared you really can have the best of both worlds and Mary Byers has the tools to help. But she's not just a cheerleader, she offers real advice and shares lessons she learned the hard way as well.
If you're already working from home or are thinking about it Making Work at Home Work has some wonderfully helpful advice to help you balance home and work when you occupy both at the same time, whether as a part-time side job or a full blown career. She covers the two main aspects of working at home, which are keeping your sanity and being profitable.
Keep reading and find out how to enter Mary's contest and also how to win a copy of her book that I'm giving away here!
About the book:
Making Work at Home Work shows moms how to develop an entrepreneurial mind-set without sacrificing their families. It covers important topics such as developing a successful business philosophy, balancing time between work and family, setting realistic goals, and handling the challenges of being both "Mommy" and "CEO" while running a profitable home-based business.
In addition to including her own experiences, author Mary Byers profiles real moms with home-based businesses who offer their hard-won advice.
Mary M. Byers successfully juggles both a freelance corporate writing and speaking business and her responsibilities as a wife and mother of two school-aged children. She is the author of The Mother Load: How to Meet Your Own Needs While Caring for Your Family and How to Say No . . . And Live to Tell about It.
